I am a descendant of the first slaves brought to
America, yet my pale rancher’s legs reveal I am
obviously not black.
Years prior to the African slave trade,
thousands of undesirables were forcibly rousted from
the streets of Ireland and shipped to America.
My ancestor, Patrick Keran, unwillingly won a
one-way cruise to the new world where the bounty
produced by his sweat was entirely consumed by his
In the 18th century this was called
indentured servitude, while today it’s called income
taxes, or paying your fair share.
Patrick’s son, Bernard, served in
Washington’s rag-tag Continental Army during the
Christmas Day Battle at Trenton and I mention this
so you understand I hail from a long line of
blue-eyed, freckle-faced, ticked-off Irishmen
While discussing this truth at High Plains Tap Room
with my friend, Rob, I suggested we start a movement
called ILM—Irish Lives Matter.
Rob jumped on this acronym as he descends
from both Irish and Indian heritage thus doubly
qualifying him. As
the new minority, regressives in the state run media
should naturally embrace our cause.
There will be dinner invitations to the White
House along with guest appearances on The View and
ILM has no beef with the police, so we will battle
and shrink the fourth branch of government, the
The EPA, BLM, USFS, NPS, USDA, FDA, and IRS
along with every other alphabet soup agency will
feel the wrath of the ILM once our membership grows
However, regressives do not allow white
Irishmen to scream racism so as to find favor and
free stuff. This
brings me to my point.
Attention BLM activists, get your “isms” straight.
Racism did not destroy America’s black
communities, socialism did.
When President Johnson launched his Great
Society welfare programs in 1964, the illegitimacy
rate in inner-city blacks was 7 percent.
Forty years of free stuff removed fathers
from the equation and now illegitimacy rate is 73
Paradoxically, the groups most damaged by
socialism have swallowed the lie the solution is
even more socialism.
Democrats are encouraging the Black Lives
Matter movement because the violence it propagates
helps the ruling class advance their gun control
After all, a few dead police officers is a small
price compared to achieving a Marxist utopia.
